Trout Run Trail

Trout Run Trail is an 11 mile asphalt surface loop around Decorah, providing access to many of the area’s natural treasures and views of beautiful Iowa countryside. Although there are many places to hop on the trail, one of the best is the Decorah Fish Hatchery. The hatchery rears approximately 150,000 trout each year. Visitors are welcome to tour the facility and feed the fish. High above the hatchery is a famous six-foot-wide, six-foot-deep bald eagle nest weighing 750 pounds.
